Kevin Cramer Is Silent As Trump Slashes Pay for Over 5,000 North Dakota Workers

But Congressman Kevin Cramer — the ultimate Trump yes-man — has refused to stand up for the over 5,000 North Dakotan federal civilian employees who stand to lose their hard-earned raise. 

The workers not getting a built-in pay raise include Customs and Border Patrol agents keeping our border secure, and over 1,200 North Dakotan VA workers fighting for our veterans. As of 2016, approximately one-third of federal employees were veterans.

“Kevin Cramer endorsed a tax bill that gave massive handouts to the ultra-wealthy and will add trillions of dollars to the national debt,” said American Bridge spokesperson Amelia Penniman. “Now, he’s silent as Donald Trump cuts workers’ wages — including Customs and Border Patrol and VA employees — in the name of fiscal responsibility.
